So Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding already has the likes of Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen and Guillermo del Toro appearing in his game, and now you can add video game actor stalwarts Troy Baker and Emily O’Brien to the mix.
O’Brien made the announcement on her Instagram Page (which now has the post removed) with a picture of herself with Norman Reedus and Troy Baker with the caption, “Honored to be working alongside these two fine lads on [Hideo Kojima’s] new project Death Stranding.” O’Brien has appeared in both video games and television, most notably for genre fans in Sony’s upcoming zombie shooter, Days Gone.
Baker, meanwhile, is no stranger to video game acting, having lent his voice to numerous games, including The Last of Us (and its upcoming sequel), as well as The Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins. He also voiced James Sutherland in the HD update to Silent Hill 2, but we won’t talk about that game.
Kojima is still keeping his cards close to him regarding any information about Death Stranding (hence why the Instagram post was probably deleted). There’s no real information as of yet regarding the story, or even the release date for the game (despite cryptic hints from Kojima himself). It makes you wonder if we’ll be getting the full story at this year’s E3, which is still months away. In the meantime, we can at least witness the “magic” of Metal Gear Survive…
